More About Coach Michael

I have been teaching the game of basketball for almost a decade. I work with players of all ages, in groups and in individual sessions. I am entering my 7th season coaching at the collegiate level, and have coached AAU at the 17U level for 3 years. During my time in the NCAA, I have worked as a student-coach at Eastern Connecticut State University (2012-2016), and a Graduate Assistant at LaGrange College (2016-2018). Over those 6 years I have been a part of 116 wins. I am a USA Basketball certified youth coach (2017). I have worked at a number of different basketball camps including the Eastern CT Camp, Brown University Women's Elite Camp, and LaGrange College Camp. The age groups ranged from 8-18, with over 400 kids coached by me personally. I am CPR/AED and First Aid Certified, and I am currently working on my NSCA Strength & Conditioning Certification. I hold a Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science and a minor in Coaching (2016).

I played high school basketball for the Hebrew High School of New England in West Hartford, Connecticut. I graduated in 2009 as the All-Time leading scorer in the school's history, holding a number of records including: career three point field goals made, career three point percentage, career field goals attempted and made, career steals, most points in single game, most threes made in single game, and most free throws attempted in career/game. I did not compete at the college level, though was involved with the team as a student-assistant.

I believe that "enthusiasm ignites greatness" and will use this ideal to instill confidence in each individual client. I will tailor each session dependent on the client's skill level and personal goals or the goals of the parents. I start every session with a dynamic warm-up followed by some basic fundamental drills in order to get the client working on the foundation for the rest of the workout. Each workout will differ depending on what skills we will work on that day. If today is a shooting workout, we will start with form-shooting, followed by small-hop shooting, leading to full-jump shooting. We will expand to catch and shoot drills and dribble pull-up shooting. Each session will end with a round-up of all the skills taught that day. The feedback for each session will allow the player to see where they need to improve. The ultimate goal will be to ignite motivation within each client in order for them to continue training on their own throughout their entire career. I will also focus on the mental aspect of the game, teaching the player how to read situations.

Client Reviews

Mike trained me as a player in high school and prepared me to play at the college level. He has worked with all age groups and is extremely organized. His work ethic and passion for the game helps the people around him work harder. He has been a part of NCAA teams that have been successful and I credit that to Mike's willingness to help the people around him be the best they can be!
